Nice and helpful staff, big rooms, clean, many facilities (except washing machine!!), really near to major metro station in the city center... perfect for Barcelona visits and nightlife. But definitly not for people looking for long nights! ;)

The kitchen was probably the best part of the hostel (I labeled my food and it didn't get stolen or anything!) Shared bathrooms are a little tiny, but you get what you pay for! Beds for a little uncomfortable, but I was only staying for two nights. The best part were the people manning the desk who had great suggestions... More

The stay was fine, but afterwards, it was just terrible. I stayed there for 4 nights and before I left, I was sure that I put the key back to the key drop-off area. Then after a while, I found out that my bank account was charged 20 euros by Diagonal house. I was really confused, so I emailed and... More

This is a fun, clean hostel right on Le Diagonal in walking distance (15 min) of La Sagrada Familia and Plaza Catalunya/Rambla. Bathrooms/showers always seemed to be available and always were clean. Staff was helpful and full of useful advice. Lots of email contact by them before arrival, which was very reassuring. I had a double, not a shared room.... More

super nice and friendly staff. Very helpful (we lost our mobil-phone there, typically) really clean and cute rooms. We had a 4-bedroom and it was really enough, we came only for bedtime and showering so 130€ for 2 Night/3 Person was perfect. Look at the picture there show the truth.

Nice welcome and other guests. Very good location but if you have a room facing the Diagonal St. it's pretty loud (uncomfortable while sleeping), and if the open is closed there is too hot inside your small room of 6 people. Unfortuantely the cook was broken, but I believe that was temporary. The shower is not as I expected but... More

Helpful front desk, great location and clean facility. Don't expect anything grand, this is a simple hostel for mostly young people who stay in the city for a few days. Feels very safe, good value for money.

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
